Lindor Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hands up if you like Lindt balls.

Now hands up if you like chocolate chip cookies.

Are both your hands up? Because mine totally are.

Lindor are one of my absolute favourite chocolates. That smooth chocolate and that cool, melty filling… Yum.

We had a lot of them leftover after Christmas, because we hang chocolates on the tree over here at my house. My younger brother sneaks them when no one’s looking and we find chocolate wrappers everywhere – behind the pillows, under the couch, falling out of his pockets. The list goes on.

Anyway so I’ve done the Nutella filled cookies and peanut butter filled chocolate chip cookies so I figured why not fill some cookies with Lindt balls, too?

They melted inside the cookies, leaving a layer of Lindor goodness right in the middle of one delicious chocolate chip cookie. These are definitely a new favourite!

Coco wanted in on all the cookie action. She was sniffing the cookies on that board like they were pieces of maple bacon (speaking of maple bacon, have you seen that ultimate dog tease video? Hilarious).


Cookie dough adapted from Meg Cabot’s Boy Meets Girl.

220g unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups + 3 tbsp plain flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
30 Lindt Balls, unwrapped

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 3 baking trays with parchment paper.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter until smooth. Add the brown sugar, white sugar, egg and vanilla extract and beat until well blended.

In a separate bowl, combine the plain flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Pour half the flour mixture into the butter mixture and beat on a low speed until just combined.

Mix in the remaining flour mixture and chocolate chips by hand, being careful not to overmix.

Scoop a tablespoon of the cookie mixture and flatten it into the palm of your hand. Place a Lindt ball in the center of the cookie dough and wrap the cookie dough around it. Roll it between the palm of your hands until a smooth cookie ball forms.

Place on baking trays, allowing room for spreading. Bake for 10 minutes. Makes 30 Lindt filled cookies.

    Can I just confirm that effectively you put these in the oven in a ball shape, rather than a flattened down cookie shape? Look amazing! And as others have said, your dog is gorgeous.

    • Hi Clare! Yes you put it in the oven as a ball! The chocolate melts a bit and the whole cookie flattens as it bakes :-)
      Hope you like these! And thanks, she is pretty cute!

  10. id love to make these but can the ingredient measurements be converted from cup to grams please? i don’t know what you mean by cup – i have many cup sizes in my kitchen…not very accurate sorry. many thanks!

  11. How in the world did it take me weeks after I tried these to comment? Anyway, these were great and I got along well with my rough conversations using a scale not cups [metric measurements because I’m German]. Plus, it might be interesting for others that halving the recipe and using one flax ‘egg’ instead of the real one for an eggless version worked a charm.
    Thanks for the great recipe – a fun way to use up the plethora of Lindor eggs I still had. My neighbours approved of these, too.
